    Default Creating Task manager using java

    Hello friends,
    This is my very first thread in this java forum. I am an engineering student and i started with java recently. I would be grateful if someone could help me with this: "I want to create a TASK MANAGER for windows OS using java."
    Of course i am not expecting any code snippets, but please help me how to do it, that is, what are the classes to be included and moreover HOW to do it.
    Thanks.

    If you want to start tasks at a certain time or periodically start reading the API docuementation for the java.util.Timer class.

    kind regards,

    Thanks for your reply, but that was not what im trying to ask.
    What i need is, i want to create an application which is like a TASK MANAGER IN WONDOWS. so i want to know how to include APIs using java, what are the classes required and how to create a task manager of my own?
    Thanks...

    You can't do that with just Java; Java has no knowledge about other tasks running on the same machine; you have to use at least a bit of JNI (native) code to accomplish that.
